Recently ate here with family, and it couldn't be more "comfort food" oriented, along with a warm "comfort atmosphere," too. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating, the menu is good, pricing is fair, and the food is excellent. They also have a couple of "private booths" with doors or curtains if you want to do a more romantic, special... More

My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere at this family owned restaurant. The food was delicious, although I should have known better to order "Maryland Crabcakes" in Knoxville. Other than that, no regrets!

We had a large group of about 16 and they accommodated us in a back room so we would have some privacy and be able to talk. Despite that, the staff was attentive and friendly. The bread and garlic butter was quite good. Menu had good variety and some great classic Mediterranean food dishes. Flavor was good but my portion... More

Went there with a large group recently. The service was excellent and the there are plenty of great options on the menu. I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was pretty good. The restaurant has a long history and the ambiance is that of an 'old school' Italian restaurant. Recommended.

Been here 3 different times. I love veal parm and order it at every Italian restaurant I go to. Out of the 3 times I've been here, the veal parm was good once. Ordered a side of gnocchi. What came to the table was 3 small potato pancakes. Disappointed. I only go if family wants to. In the future, I'm... More

I first ate at Naples 40 years ago. I swore I would not go back but recently I had lunch there after 40 years. My opinion is still the same. This restaurant is very ordinary with food that is just ok. Knoxvillian's unfortunately don't know what good Italian food is. They say this place is romantic. I see it as... More

Spaghetti night special. Big plate of spaghetti for $5.99. Good spaghetti. Small restaurant with darling corner booths. Perfect for a romantic dinner for two.

I truly do not understand why this restaurant doesn't have a higher Trip Advisor rating. I've been going here on a regular basis (4+ times a month) for about 15 years now. It is Knoxville's best authentic Italian restaurant and is again and again voted such by the local newspaper. As far as specials....Naples offers $5.99 spaghetti on Mondays and... More

We went there because of its high rating in Tripadvisor, what a disappointment. We went there on an early Saturday evening around 5:30. The room is dark, but that's ok. The deco was old and washed out, showed a lack of maintenance. Our order of two pastas took a long time to come. Once it came, my son's fettuccine was... More
